We will shoot at 25 meters. Bring a .22 rimfire rifle and some spare mags and gain valuable marksmanship skills without using up your expensive center fire ammo. You will want about 400 - 500 rounds. GI web sling highly recommended. Centerfire is welcome, so if you have a new high power rifle or new mags you want to test drive at 25-meters, that’s alright too. While it is expensive, there is no better way to learn if you can depend on your equipment than putting 400 - 500 rounds through it in two days.
Lincoln Izaak Walton League is a cold range. No Tracer, AP, or incendiary ammo allowed (fire hazard, hard on steel targets). Attracts a magnet is OK.
Please leave your rifles in the car until asked to bring them to the firing line.
Please, no handguns (concealed or open) on the firing line.
Bring layered clothing, raingear, a windbreaker, and lightweight gloves, eye protection, and hearing protection. Dress for the weather and bring raingear if forecasted. Bring a lunch, snacks, and plenty of water. A shooting jacket will be extremely helpful, especially if shooting a high power rifle, and a shooting mat may make prone and sitting positions more comfortable.

No alcohol permitted.
